Read Gryphon in the digital flip book version here.


Gryphon Cover

The University has a long association with the mythical gryphon, which appeared in the coat of arms of our original benefactor, Thomas Fielding Johnson. A golden demi-gryphon features in our heraldic crest (printed on your degree certificate), and the Team Leicester branding for our sports clubs also features a demi-gryphon holding a book.

These majestic animals have the body, back legs and tail of a lion, and the head, wings and front talons of an eagle. They are also thought of as the king of all creatures, and so we couldn’t think of a better name for the alumni magazine – the number one way to stay connected with news from the University and the successes of fellow alumni.

Please keep sending in your news to:, we love hearing from you.

The magazine is available to read online, in the digital flip book, and in the hard copy of the magazine.
